I contributed to the review of 'Policy Options for Sustainable Management of UK Peatlands' which is one of eight scientific reviews of priority topics carried out as part of the Commission of Inquiry.
All eight Reviews are now available to download and the Commission is inviting interested organisations and individuals to respond to the draft Reviews. Responses should be sent by e-mail to the Inquiry team at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and no later than Monday, 20 September 2010.
The draft reviews will be discussed at the upcoming 'Investing in Peatlands - the Climate Challenge' conference at Durham University on 28-29 September 2010. For more information, and to register for the conference, visit http://iucn-uk-peatlandprogramme.org/conference2010.
The Commission of Inquiry will also examine wider issues of relevance to policy and land management practice and therefore it is keen to receive general views on the priorities for delivering peatland restoration.
An Open Inquiry event is to be held at the University of Edinburgh on 3 November 2010 which will take oral evidence based on these submissions.
